Cut Rainbow Chard

Bill and Karla Chambers started Stahlbush Island Farms with two crops, a piece of land and a passion for good food. Today the couple still lives in the same house on the farm and manages the business every day. Some may call that old-fashioned; we call it a family farm. Meet the family and learn more about certified sustainable farming here.

Description

At Stahlbush, farming is an art and a science. Only perfect varieties that are naturally sweet, colorful and bursting with flavor make the cut. Our co-owner and professional artist Karla S. Chambers captures the essence of Stahlbush using the colors of the farm in paintings for each and every label. Our commitment to nutrition, health and a happier life for everyone is what fuels our passion for fine food.

Great Ways to Enjoy

  • Make tacos! Add cooked Swiss chard to your favorite taco for a superb power taco.
  • Make a lentil or bean soup. Give soup an extra nutrient boost by adding the greens during the last 15 minutes of cooking.
  • Add them to a salad. Give the frozen chard a salt massage, rinse and wilt it slightly to serve with garlicky yogurt or blanch it and serve it Japanese style, in a buttery soy dressing.
  • Use it as a base for chicken. Bake chicken over Swiss chard and croutons for a one-pot meal.
  • Make a pizza. Top a frozen pizza with frozen chard for an extra boost of green.

Sustainability

Sustainable Farming Soil Health
Soil Health

With each growing season, we use conservation tillage to reduce erosion. We also plant cover crops to return nitrogen to the soil and build organic matter. We even apply digestate from our biogas plant to our fields as an organic fertilizer that naturally increases microbial activity and builds overall soil health.

 

Water Conservation

We continue to improve our irrigation, using weather, soil moisture and evapotranspiration data to track water use and needs. We have implemented automation systems that allow us to access real-time data that automatically controls and schedules our irrigation based on the needs of each plant.

 

Wildlife Habitat and Biodiversity

We plant native species that attract pollinators like bumblebees and plant cover crops in the winter that keep the blue herons on the farm year-round. We have a thriving blue heron rookery or habitat on the farm.

 

Social Responsibility and Employee Well-Being

We have programs and benefits in place for our employees to ensure job satisfaction and fulfillment. We also have programs in place to improve our local community, for instance we donate one million servings to local food banks every year.

 

Innovation

We were the first farm ever to be certified sustainable by the Food Alliance. We have always been early adopters of new technology. Stahlbush was the first farm in Oregon to use GPS technology and the first to build a biogas plant that generates electricity using agricultural by-product in North America.
